LONELY

Lyrics: John Buckley McQuaid
Music: John H. Schiessler

We photograph the present for the scrapbooks of the past
We’re on our way to Heaven with a heart that beats so fast
We’re learning to be patient with a different point of view
You don’t argue with an angel if you know what’s good for you

Somebody is laughing
A moment is frozen in space
Someone’s photographing
The eyes of the world in a face

Hey! Hey! You know what they say
Okay you’re finding a way
Who cares what happened before
Lonely doesn’t live here anymore
Lonely doesn’t live here anymore
Lonely doesn’t live here anymore
Lonely doesn’t live here anymore

This picture’s been in wallets. It was taken here in town,
Outside of Café Cowards. Someone wrote the whole thing down
The heavens cracked wide open and the world became a lake
Then someone’s heart got broken. It was more than they could take

Somebody is laughing
A moment is frozen in space
Someone’s photographing
The eyes of the world in a face

Hey! Hey! You know what they say
Okay you’re finding a way
Who cares what happened before
Lonely doesn’t live here anymore
Lonely doesn’t live here anymore
Lonely doesn’t live here anymore
Lonely doesn’t live here anymore
